A new Nokia smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 625, pairing budget specifications with a big – albeit low-res – display has been spotted crossing Chinese certification. The new and unannounced phone is fronted by a 4.7-inch screen running at WVGA resolution, while inside there’s said to be a 1.2GHz dualcore Snapdragon S4 processor paired with 512MB of RAM. The listing, at Tenaa, also refers to the handset as the Lumia 625H.
Other specifications are believed to include a super-sensitive touchscreen – for use even when wearing gloves – but not Nokia’s ClearBlack Display technology. The Chinese listing confirms 3G WCDMA and GSM/GPRS, but there’s also said to be LTE inside as well.
The shell is believed to measure in at 133.2 x 72.2 x 10.5 mm while the weight is said to be 161.5g. A 2,000 mAh battery is also expected, along with a 5-megapixel main camera and a VGA front-facing camera.
A little digging turns up some similarities with a Nokia phone that passed through US FCC testing last month as the RM-941.
According to Liveside, the phone is expected to be billed as the “cheapest LTE capable device in the Lumia range”; the site claims it will go on sale at the end of this month, in fact, priced at 1,999 Chinese yuan ($326 unsubsidized).
At 4.7-inches, the Lumia 625 would in fact offer the largest screen on a device in Nokia’s current range. However, the WVGA resolution would put it a long way off from the 720p that the Lumia 920, 925, and 928 offer.
